“Great Hotel”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Great hotel. Loved the room...close to shopping. Will definately be staying there again...have already booked a room for my next visit.
It's disappointing to see people write reviews that reflect their stuck up personality....and by the way Tamara from Pontiac.....being around food not properly clothed and without shoes is a health issue which could result in charges and fines to the hotel....how rude of you to assume it was ok....

This is a clean, friendly place to base from for Frankenmuth, Birch Run, or Flint destinations. Great breakfast, quiet clean rooms and terrific staff. Good value for the area. Needed a place to touch down during mid week and get good sleep - perfect! Room had a fridge and microwave (both of which worked!) which made it convenient for dinner left overs and use of nearby grocery store for economical snacks.

I work in the Travel Industry, therefore I have conducted many hotel site inspections for work and have stayed at many hotels for both work and leisure. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Birch Run in December with my Mother & 2 daughters for a Cheerleading competition. This hotel exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Service & location were great The staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with, especially the older gentleman at the front desk (I think he must be the GM or owner). Such a pleasant guy to deal with. He really goes above and beyond! The girls at the front deck and cleaning ladies were also so pleasant. The rooms were large, up-to-date and clean. The breakfast was superb. Alot of selection, good quality and the staff really keep on top of things during the breakfast as far as replenishing and keeping things tidy and clean. I hope our team stays at this property again next year!

Our family stayed here between Christmas and New Years for a night while shopping in Birch Run. I found this HI Express to be better than most I have stayed at. Upon arrival, we were greeted by very friendly staff who quickly checked us in. Parking is ample on both sides of the hotel. There is also a large field behind the hotel where many people walked their dogs which was convenient. The lobby is nice and open which makes for a good welcome.

When I booked on line, I asked for and received a quiet room on the 3rd floor away from doors and elevators. Even though the hotel is situated between the interstate and Dixie Hwy, I found the room to be very quiet. We did spend some time on the 1st floor going to the breakfast area and found that floor to be noisier.

Our room with two queen beds had ample space and the bathroom had upgrades (tiles, sink, shower). The furnishings in the room were typical of HI Express hotels and had a coffee maker, microwave, and a fridge. The beds and pillows were comfortable.

The complimentary breakfast was standard fare but I give this hotel top marks for staff keeping the food and drink well stocked and providing over-flow seating in an adjoining room.

We will likely visit Birch Run again in the Spring to do some shopping and we will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Many people who stay here are intending on shopping at the outlet stores nearby. Especially on Sunda...

I stay at Holiday Inn Express whenever possible. You are guaranteed a clean room, good customer service and a great breakfast. The front desk personnel are always friendly. It was quite busy while we were there. If you want a quiet room, request to stay on the second or third floor. We stayed right down the hall from the pool and could hear kids running and yelling down the halls. (It didn't really bother us but if you want peace and quiet definitely stay on the second floor or the other side of the hotel.) Having access to a washer and dryer is a major bonus. It is a great place for the $$.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms on the same side of the hotel as the pool.

We went with 3 couples for a weekend getaway and shopping trip at Birch Run. This was a great location, close to the stores and highway. Very clean and the staff super helpful. The breakfast was good and includes hot food. We ordered takeout for dinner one night and the staff was ok with us eating in the breakfast area and then we stayed a while to play cards so we had a great time. We'll definitely stay here again.

When I travel and end up at the end of a long day of driving at my hotel, the last thing I want is a problem plagued property. My wife and I took a drive mid week to Frankenmuth, Michigan. Trying to find a resonably price room in Frankenmuth is nearly impossible. But if look just a few miles to the southwest you'll find Birch Run Michigan and the Holiday Inn Express.It located just east of the I75 Birch Run exit.
I read many reviews of hotels in Birch Run. Some complained of bad service, dirty rooms and smelly hallways. When I came to the review of the Holliday Inn Express it was all positive comments. The words "clean", "friendly and helpful" came up in many reviews.
After staying there I agree. The lobby is bright and cheerful with a large free hot breakfast room attached. Next to the breakfasrt room is the inside heated swiming pool and work out facility. All the staff that we had contact with were very pleasant and knowledgable.
All the 90+ rooms have inside entrances. Our room had two very comfortable queen beds, a microwave, and refrigerator. The pillows were marked "firm" and "soft" so you can stack them to your preference. The room and bath area were very clean. This is what you pay for...a great experience with no hassles. Thanks Holliday Inn Express, we'll be back.

Room Tip: We had room 220. It was almost across from the elevator and the ice and snak area.
